The primary contact for work on bioinformatics within the Department of Computer Science is Peter Jeavons, who teaches a one-week module on Algorithm Design and Complexity for Bioinformatics (part of the Oxford MSc Course in Bioinformatics).
The group has developed a number of bioinformatics tools, often as part of a student project.
